    PA-18 Paperwork

    Hello everyone. I am new to the group and would appreciate any advice you can provide. I am comteplating a Supercub project and am wondering what a good set of papers (ie data plate, airworthiness cert., registration, and W/B) would cost. Again, any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Hi 494,

    There has been a lot of discussion about this over the years. The "Search" function can help you track some of this down to look at the older threads about it - although a simple search on paperwork yields a lot of results.

    "logs" might be a better search, just guessing.

    The search function is at the top just under the "home of all things pa-18"

    I'd say they were worth about $1.25 without a substantial part of the associated airframe to satisfy the FAA.

    I'd say they were worth about $1.25 without a substantial part of the associated airframe to satisfy the FAA. I know this is an old thread but I just ran accross it . A data tag with good paperwork is worth at least 5k and could be worth a lot more with a good collection of field approvals. There are a lot of cubs out there built off of data tags and they are some of the nicest because they are new.
    If you ball up your cub and buy a new fuselage, then decide to put in a 180 while you are rebuilding what is the difference? If anyone out there has a data tag and logs from a 180 hp cub with a field approval for a pawnee prop let me know I might give you a bit more than $1.25 for it.
